A BLUEPRINT for Havant’s future employment, housing and green spaces has been given the green light.
Havant Borough Council has become the first local authority in Hampshire to have a Local Plan up and running.
It was rubber-stamped at a full council meeting following public consultation and government inspection.
It sets out how much developers should contribute financially to the community when they are authorised to build a new development.
Councillor David Guest, who is responsible for planning policy and the built environment said: ‘This is an important milestone and is an accumulation of many years of hard work and community involvement.
‘The people of the borough have helped shape this key document which is an excellent platform for future planning applications and will encourage jobs and growth.’
